Presidential candidate hopeful of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Dr. Ekow Spio Garbrah has said he deserves to be given the mandate to lead the NDC into the 2020 polls because according to him, he is the most qualified among the lot who are contesting for the high office of the NDC, saying ‘’ I am the man of the moment’’
The former minister for trade and industry touted his international experience and expertise which says will enable him succeed a president, having worked with several reputable and high profile international organizations including the United Nations.
Speaking on his political credentials Tuesday on GHone Tv monitored by Bestnewsgh.Com, Dr. Ekow Spio Garbrah said he was confident of winning the presidential primaries of the NDC.
He stressed that having worked with several advertising companies in both the local and international fronts in the past, he has the expertise to rebrand the NDC which was touted as a corrupt political party prior to the 2016 presidential elections.
The NDC has set December 7 for the election of its presidential candidate.
A host of high profile personalities including former president John Dramani Mahama, second deputy speaker of parliament Alban Bagbin, Businessman Nurideen Iddrisu, Professor Joshua Alabi, and Mr. Goosie Tanoh among others have announced their intension to contest the slot.
Many political pundits have tipped the former president to win the NDC presidential primaries but Dr. Ekow Spio Garbrah believes he is the man of the moment and desires to be given the opportunity to recapture political power for the party.
He said there is a wind of change sweeping through the camp of the opposition political patty and that he is confident NDC delegates will choose him as their leader for the 2020 polls.
“there are now at least ten or more candidates who feel that they can present themselves for leadership of the party but the flagbearship race is only a means to an end, and that end is the presidency of the republic of Ghana. So we are hoping that delegates will examine us based on our capacity, experience, track record, reputations, based on what Ghanaians keep telling us, they want a president or a leader who is not tainted by corruption, who they (Ghanains) believe is competent and experienced and I am sure when Ghanaians including NDC delegates take all issues into account, they will come to a conclusion that I am the best candidate for the NDC at this particular time. I deserve to be given the position”. Dr. Spio Garbrah has said.
